The release responds to the growing interest in Colombia as a destination for tourism, remote work, and immigration. Listed among the top 3 most beautiful countries in the world in a recent Forbes article, Colombia attracts expats with its affordable lifestyle, beautiful scenery, and friendly local population.

Expat With Leo explains that Santa Marta is a top choice among its clients due to its pristine sandy beaches, scenic views, laid-back Caribbean lifestyle, high-quality healthcare, and affordable beachfront properties. Mr. Johnson, a retired American expat, was looking for a furnished condo in Santa Marta in close proximity to the beach, grocery stores, and shopping areas, with a monthly budget of $500 to $1,200.

Expat With Leo details its standard property search process in the case study. Upon identifying the client’s criteria and budget, the team searches online listings and leverages its network to create a list of suitable properties. They then schedule viewings at a convenient time for the client and accompany them.

One of the options suggested to Mr. Johnson was the luxury Areia building, constructed in 2012 and located within a short walk from the beach. The amenities included two pools, a gym, a sauna and a Turkish bath, Jacuzzis, and pool tables. The chosen unit was a furnished 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom apartment, with a parking space included in the rental price.

The apartment was listed at $1,000 per month, and the team advised the client on the offer and lease terms and guided him during the negotiation process. As a result, the lease was signed at a reduced price of $900 per month.

In addition to the agency’s help in finding a suitable property, clients can also benefit from an in-person tour of their chosen city, immigration and visa assistance, and individual Spanish lessons with a local teacher. Expat With Leo also offers airport transfers and other services, depending on the needs of the client.

“You’ll benefit from year-round warm weather, eliminating the need for shoveling snow during North American winters,” a spokesperson for the agency said. “Say goodbye to worries and embrace the opportunity to relax on sunny beaches throughout the year, sipping on refreshing pina coladas, all while chuckling at your friends and neighbors struggling with ice shoes back in North America.”
